The Pentagon are allegedly investigating whether or not there was any Russian involvement in the chemical attack that reportedly claimed the lives of nine people – including four children – after President Trump last night gave the order to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase during the early hours of this morning.
BREAKING: Senior US military officials say Pentagon looking into whether Russia participated in Syrian chemical weapons attack.

Russia called the attack an “aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law”, with President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman saying he believed the US had carried out the strikes under a “far-fetched pretext”.
Russia has diverted a warship to protect the Syrian coast and vowed to bolster Bashar al-Assad’s missile defences against more US strikes, risking a confrontation between the former Cold World foes.

This latest news that there may be Russian involvement is very worrying indeed. Senior US military officials say the Pentagon is looking into whether Russia participated in Syrian chemical weapons attack. Participation in the use of chemical weapons would jeopardize Moscow’s goal of being accepted as a viable partner by the United States and others in the campaign against violent extremist organizations in Syria.
Today, the Lord of War himself, John McCain, was on Sky News in the UK talking about the need for more US air intervention in the skies over Syria, the setting up of safe-zones & the need to arm & train the Free Syrian Army.
Senator John McCain told Sky News that US defence secretary General James Mattis and national security adviser H R McMaster acted swiftly and “took advantage of those dreadful images of dead babies”.
Sen McCain said the strikes were about both sending a message and the beginning of a campaign that could lead to the partition of Syria.
Fifty-nine Tomahawk missiles were fired from two warships – the USS Porter and USS Ross – in the Mediterranean Sea, targeting the government-controlled Shayrat airfield near the city of Homs.
So dont be expecting this to be just a one of set of air-strikes, no, i feel we are about to see those surrounding Trump pushing for a larger campaign. So much for Trump being different, because this is looking very much like its the same old “regime change” policy that has gone on before him.
DID ASSAD REALLY POISON HIS OWN PEOPLE?
Ever since news broke about the chemical attack I have quietly reflected on the situation and looked at numerous reports that have come my way.
The one thing i cannot get away from in my mind is why one earth Assad would choose to use chemical weapons now or at any time, knowing full well the eyes of the world are on him and waiting for him to make any kind of mistake?
It just makes no sense at all, from a political or military standpoint.
What does make more sense is that the Islamic State, and their backers in the west & Saudi Arabia, having seen the Syrian regime backed by Russia having massive victories across the country and routing the terrorists, are desperate for western intervention. They need some kind of game-changing move to stop them from being defeated fully.
Knowing the reaction that would come if chemical weapons were used in any kind of an attack, its my belief that the Islamic State backed by mossad/MI6/CIA carried out the attack themselves in a classic false flag operation.
There is yet to be any conclusive evidence that it was the Syrian regime that carried out the attack, and furthermore, the Ex-UK ambassador to Syria has said there is NO PROOF of a chemical attack at all!
This wouldn’t be the first time that a false flag chemical attack has been used as a pretext to get rid of Assad. In 2013 the world was outraged at a similar attack on a suburb or Damascus, only for us to later find out the munitions could only have been fired from ISIS held positions.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? WHO IS REALLY INVOLVED?
So, what happens if the war hawks come back and tell President Trump that the Russians were involved or had prior knowledge that the attack would take place?
Will Trump feel he has to take action on Russia just to appease the growing numbers of people that are concerned he has close ties to the Kremlin & Putin?
Is Trump being used as a proxy for the long time enemy of the Syrian regime & people, Israel?
Trump made no attempt to hide the fact that he is very pro-Israel during the campaign and in the short time he has been in office, so could it be that Netenyahu is using him to take out his enemy?
These are very perilous times indeed, especially with Russia now sending a warship back to the area to provide air defences against any further attack by sea.
Just when we thought we got something new, something different in Donald Trump, its back to the old saying of…. MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS!
